The Inland Revenue Board (LHDN) has extended the tax payment deadlines for taxpayers and employers who are affected by the recent floods.
In a statement, LHDN said that the floods have affected the capability of taxpayers and employers to make their tax payments on time. These include payments of estimated tax, tax instalments (whether at the stage of investigation, audit, collection, or civil lawsuit), as well as monthly tax deductions (PCB).
In light of this, LHDN has pushed the deadline for the payment of estimated tax payable (CP204) from December 2021 to 31 January 2022 in hopes that it will alleviate the burden of those affected. Additionally, the instalment payment for investigation, audit, and civil legal fees for January 2022 is postponed to February 2022.
Aside from that, LHDN is also allowing employers to delay the remittance of their employees’ PCB and/or CP38 for December 2021 to 31 January 2022. Lastly, taxpayers with remaining tax payments are allowed to request for deferment to a period that they prefer.
In tapping into these flexibilities, affected taxpayers and employers are required to first apply for the deferments. Specifically, individuals who wish to delay the payment of their estimated tax payable (CP204) will need to send an email to [email protected]. Meanwhile, those seeking for all the other deferments can apply via this specific form on LHDN’s official website.
If you have any further enquiries related to this matter, you can contact LHDN via its HASiL Careline at 03-8911 1000 or 603-8911 1100 (overseas). Alternatively, you can use the HASiL Live Chat or LHDN’s customer feedback form.
